Harsha Lake helps control flooding Local reservoirs still far above normal levels

Paint the Town Purple contest is being held Cancer Society to raise awareness




William H. Harsha Lake at East Fork State Park rose a record 43.5 feet above its normal water level. The excess water completely covered several park buildings, including the Maupin Pavilion, just visible in the picture.

rising 43.5 feet above its normal level. Caesar Creek Lake rose 18.72 feet. At East Fork, many of the park’s facilities were completely under water, including bathrooms and picnic areas. Both boat ramps and parks were closed due to the high water levels. “What was the big contributing factor was the events going down on the lower Ohio River,” O'Boyle said. “We also have local flooding concerns too, but the local concerns were not so much the issue with this last event.” Boyle said they had to continue holding water even after rain let up to prevent addition-

al flooding of the Ohio River. In acre-feet, which is the amount of water it takes to flood an acre of land at a depth of one foot, the two lakes stored an estimated 371,525 acre-feet of water that would have gone into the rivers. Although O'Boyle said one lake alone won't make a dramatic difference in preventing flooding downstream, he said the combination of all the reservoirs along the Ohio can make a difference. And what happens if the lakes reach full capacity? Well, even the record level at East Fork Lake didn't fill more than 62.5 percent capacity,

and Caesar Creek Lake is only storing 44.8 percent capacity. “We would need May to be like April was weather-wise,” O'Boyle said about reaching capacity. “Hopefully, we'll keep our fingers crossed, we won't get to that point. But we never know.” Now that the rain has let up, engineers are letting water out of the lakes as conditions allow. “We've been given the go ahead to release water,” O'Boyle said about East Fork Lake. “It takes about 12 days for water to make it down to the Mississippi, we aren't really contributing to the prob-

lems down south.” O'Boyle said at Harsha Lake they are letting the water level drop about two feet a day. Since it's record high level last week, it has dropped 13 feet. He discouraged people from swimming in the lake because of hidden dangers and said they will not re-open boat ramps at East Fork until the water is down to 740 feet above sea level. “Right around Memorial Day weekend we should be getting close to our normal summer level,” O'Boyle said. “And hopefully the clean up won't be too dramatic.”

The color purple means a lot to Vickie Harris, and she is working hard to make sure Clermont County businesses, restaurants and stores are decked out in purple all month long. Harris is a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, and the cancer survivor is passionate about finding a cure for the disease she was diagnosed with not long ago. “Purple is the signature color for the American Cancer Society,” Harris said. “All of the cancers have different colors. Purple is definitely the color that is a survivor color.” Harris helps organize the Relay for Life in Clermont County, and when she discovered other relays were participating in the Paint the Town Purple contest, she wanted to involve Clermont County. “It is something I have wanted to do for a couple of years and didn't know where to go to make it happen,” Harris said. “I just opened the phone book one day and was really lucky.” After contacting several business and presenting the contest to council, Harris was off and running. The contest requires participants to literally transform their place of work into a sea of purple to show support for the society and raise awareness about the disease. See Bethel, Page 3

National Day of Prayer draws diverse crowd Residents come together to celebrate common bond BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

Clermont County celebrated the National Day of Prayer May 5, and citizens, elected officials and pastors all gathered on the courthouse steps to commemorate the occasion. “We wanted to join with others in celebrating the National Day of Prayer,” said Eve Moody about coming to the event. “To be part of this program is a good opportunity for our children.” Moody and her daughters Sarahann and Tabitha and her son Matthew all read scripture and participated in the pro-

gram. Moody’s children got several opportunities to practice pubic speaking and sing at the celebration. “I think it is good for the county, the country and I think we need to remember this day,” Tabitha Moody said about the National Day of Prayer. The Moodys and several other families read scripture before the official program began, including the Gorski family of Williamsburg. Christine Gorski brought her seven children to the event, two of whom read passages. “I think it reminds (the kids) our freedom of prayer and

religion doesn’t come lightly,” Gorski said about the Day of Prayer. “It’s a sign our nation is going backward that we have to dedicate a day to prayer.” The celebration has been a part of Clermont County for 12 years, and this year scores of people gathered for the ceremony. The program also honored elected officials, law enforcement, fire and EMS, veterans, servicemen and their families as well as children. “The leadership of this county values prayer,” said Pastor John Martin, a retired school principal. “The people who participate come in humility and compassion, not arrogance. They want God to be the main priority of this nation.” Commissioner Bob Proud

While rivers are beginning to return to normal, yards are no longer flooded and residents can walk outside without an umbrella, local lakes still remain dozens of feet above their normal water level. The reason is flood control, and the technology helped prevent even more flooding during the month of April, where Greater Cincinnati areas saw 13-plus inches of rain. “A lot of people don't realize we are also here for flood control,” Jim O'Boyle, park manager for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, said about Harsha Lake. “There is more to the lake here than a local fishing hole.” East Fork Lake and Caesar Creek Lake were both 'shut off' periodically in April to prevent local rivers from flooding. The lakes are two of 78 reservoirs built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that provide flood reduction along the Ohio River Basin. O'Boyle said the Army Corps of Engineers monitors the Little Miami and East Fork of the Little Miami rivers and other tributaries to the Ohio River. When these rivers reach flood state, dam operators close hydraulic gates to reduce outflow. This results in the lakes rising behind their dams. Because of this, O'Boyle said East Fork Lake reached a record high level of 777.35 feet above sea level May 4,

Senator Brown announces Medicaid lock-in program to limit drug abuse U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown announced a federal bill May 4 that would establish a Medicaid lock-in program to help prevent prescription drug abuse in the state of Ohio. “It is going to save the state a lot of money, cut down on abuse and should mean fewer deaths,” Brown said during his press conference call. Ohio's Medicaid program spent $820 million on prescription medicines last year. While many prescriptions are used correctly, Brown said people have abused the system by “doctor shopping,” or going from doctor to doctor to get the same prescription. An investigation by the Government Accountability Office, which audited the Medicaid program of the five largest states, revealed 65,000 cases where Medicaid beneficiaries visited six or more doctors and up to 46 different

pharmacies to acquire prescriptions. And in Ohio, from January to June 2010, there were more than 927,000 purchases of Oxycodone. “Prescription drug abuse has become an epidemic in Ohio,” Brown said. “More have died from overdoses than car accidents.” Brown said in 2008 prescription drugs, like Oxycodone, caused more overdoses in Ohio than heroine and cocaine combined, and just last week law enforcement in Perry County arrested 10 people for drug abuse. “It hasn't been a long term problem,” Brown said about the newer issue of prescription drug abuse. “This is something that has not been addressed by previous laws.” Brown said although people can be convicted of drug abuse, no system is in place to stop it from happening. The new bill, called the Stop Trafficking Pills Act, would require national adoption of

Medicaid lock-in programs, which are currently used in 20 states. “South Carolina had a 43 percent drop in prescribed pain medications,” Brown said about the state already using a similar program. If passed, the bill would require the state to identify high risk individuals, such as those receiving a high number of prescription drugs or those who have been convicted of drug abuse, and place them in the program where they would be limited on the prescription drugs they receive. “Lock in makes so much sense to have,” Brown said.

“If you need the drugs you have one doctor and one pharmacy. They will not feed you more than you need.” Brown said he has been working on the bill for two or three years. He has worked with both the Strickland and Kasich administrations and convened a round table in March that included the U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, state officials from the Attorney General's office and others to discuss the issue of drug abuse in Ohio.

County to host ‘shred day’ The fourth Clermont County Shred Day will be held from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Saturday, May 21, at the Department of Job and Family Services parking lot, located at 2400 Clermont Center Drive in Batavia. “Clermont County citizens and businesses are encouraged to bring boxes of their documents to be disposed of by the Cintas Mobile Shredding Unit,” said Clermont County Records Center Manager Barb Brown. “It doesn’t matter if the documents contain staples, paper clips or rubber bands. This is a safe and secure way to ensure that your personal information on those items is destroyed.” Clermont County Sheriff’s Office investigator Matt Farmer said he has seen too many people have their iden-

tity stolen, by thieves stealing credit card application forms, and personal information left in cars and gym lockers. “Today’s identity thief is savvy,” said Farmer. “They watch people putting purses, wallets, and laptops into car trunks while they go shopping or hit the gym. As soon as the person is out of sight, the thief moves in, breaks into the car and pops the trunk open.” Farmer said that identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in America. Brown recommends retaining personal tax returns for seven years and bank statements for three years.

Mulch matters –  pick the right one for the job BY STEVE BOEHME “You are what you eat” is an old saying, and it points the way to picking the right mulch for your landscape. It’s common sense that if you add several inches of anything to your gardens each year it will affect the soil quality over time. Some mulches are much better for your plants than others. For instance, most plants prefer “acid” soils, so pine bark is healthier for them than hardwood mulch, and much healthier than dyed wood chips. We’ve tried many mulches in our gardens over the years, and settled on pine bark for many reasons. We usually use shredded pine bark on new plantings, and then switch to big pine bark nuggets after a few years because it lasts longer and discourages weeds better. Another thing we like

about pine bark nuggets is that even when they’re wet they “breathe” instead of packing down, and they dry out quickly which discourages fungus diseases. Good mulches turn into soil eventually. Your plants won’t appreciate being smothered by non-compostable mulches like cypress or cedar. These products work fine for paths and play areas, but they are poison for gardens. Many dyed mulches contain recycled pallets and other waste wood. These can be bait for termites, and actually rob your soil of nutrients as they decompose. The ideal mulch should improve your soil, actually becoming rich humus that can be tilled in to loosen compacted soils and clay. Pine bark mulch has a low PH, which means it is good food for evergreens, blueber-

ries, dogwoods and other acid-loving plants. Mulching your beds with pine bark year after year will build your soil very nicely. Finely shredded hardwood compost mulches like Black Gold are next best. Proper composting kills weed seeds and diseases, so you’re not importing problems into your landscape. Poor quality mulches are more likely to breed funguses and mushroom colonies. All mulches are not equally effective at weed control. Fine-ground mulches are much like potting soils; windblown weed seeds or blown grass clippings will sprout and root easily. Course bark mulches or “nuggets” aren’t so friendly to weed seeds, and they last much longer before turning to soil so they make better weed barriers for a much longer period. That makes them ultimately cheaper, because you need less in future years. The first step in shopping for mulch is figuring out how

much you need. Figure out how many square feet of beds you have to cover by multiplying how many feet long times how many feet wide. For three inches thick of cover you’ll need one cubic foot of mulch for every four square feet of beds. One cubic foot for every six square feet will give you a two-inch thick mulch job. All mulches are not equally good for your garden, and some can be downright harmful. There’s no requirement for labeling to disclose what exactly is in the bag. You get what you pay for with mulch. Smart gardeners choose mulch very carefully, and don’t just buy the cheapest thing they can find.

The school year is coming to a close, which means that if you have young children, you are now one year closer to college days — and college bills. At the same time, you are moving nearer to your own retirement. Can you save for college while

you put money away for retirement? Yes — but it will take planning, patience and discipline. Your first step is to be aware of the challenges you will face. As you know, the financial crisis of 2008 and early 2009 took a bite out of

just about everyone’s retirement portfolio. And even though the markets have bounced back strongly, you might still have some ground to make up in your 401(k), Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other accounts. At the same time, budgetary pressures may lead to reductions in Pell Grants and other federally backed financial aid to students, so you may need to provide more assistance to your children than you once might have thought. To deal with these challenges and help yourself make progress toward your college/retirement objectives, consider the following

moves: • Establish some priorities. How much should you save and invest for retirement versus college? Also, how much of the college costs would you like to cover: 100%, 50% or perhaps a set dollar amount? There’s no one “right” answer for everyone — you’ll have to establish priorities based on your preferences and family situation. But once you’ve set these priorities, you’ll have some guiding principles to govern your savings and investment decisions. • Put time on your side. The earlier you start saving for both your retirement and your children’s college education, the better your chances of reaching your goals. • Choose the right investment vehicles. You may want to work with a financial advisor to choose the appropriate

• Keep investing. The financial markets will always move up and down — so in some months, you might not like what you see on your investment statements. But the most successful investors keep investing in good times and bad. If you decide to take a “timeout” from investing and head to the sidelines during a market slump, you could miss out on the next rally. By following these suggestions, you can keep moving forward toward two special times in your life: when your children attain the higher education that can help them succeed in life and when you can enjoy the retirement for which you’ve worked so hard.



E v E n

mix of investments for your needs. But in general, it’s a good idea to contribute as much as you can afford to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement account. Your contributions are generally made with pretax dollars, and your earnings can grow tax deferred. And whether or not you have access to a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan, you can probably also contribute to a traditional IRA, which offers tax-deferred earnings, or a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings, provided you’ve held your account at least five years and you don’t start taking withdrawals until you’ve reached age 59?. To save for college, you may want to explore a 529 plan, which also provides tax-free earnings, provided they are used for qualified higher education expenses.*

A Message From The Commissioner of the Ohio High School Athletic Association The following article was written by Daniel Ross, Ph.D., Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Commissioner in the Fall 2010 OHSAA Magazine. “I vividly remember a conversation I had with a high school soccer coach from

Northeast Ohio this past summer on the topic of nonschool teams. He made a statement tha t left a big imrpession on me and illustrates a significant obstacle that many high school coaches are forced to work around. “‘I spend the first month of every season trying to break the bad habits that my players get inito while playing club soccer,” the coach said. “I knew exactly what he meant. So many of the things that are at the core of school sports do not exist in club., travel, AAU, or Junior Olympic sports. Things like a focus on academics, sportsmanship, community pride and ensuring that the coaches have completed an education rpogram.”The proliferation of non-interscholastic teams often creates a real dilemma for student-athletes, coaches and parents. It is something that our staff here at the OHSAA discusses on a regular basis because, in some cases, non-school teams threaten what interscholastic sports are all about. “Do I consider all nonschool teams rogue? Of course not, and I don’t have any problems with youngsters wanting to improve their skills to the highest level possible, But far too many nonschool teams just focus on playing an incredibale amount of games and winning above all else. “Many non-school coaches make unrealistic promises of a rosy future that often don’t pan out. They tell student-athletes and their parents that the only way they will get exposure to earn a college scholarship is to play for their ‘elite’ team. I not only find that very hard to believe, but when I hear about the costs and fees associated with non-school teams I don’t believe it’s very hard to see who is really ‘profitiing’ from the exposure. “In additon, non-school teams are a part of the unfortunate trend today that is seeing young people specialize in just one sport. Just as a well-balanced diet is key to nutritutional health, playing several sports has proven to

be more beneficial to a young person’s overall growth and development that just playing one sport, where the same motions day after day led to over-use of drtain muscles and injury. “It is my sincere desire the the famlies and communities in Ohio will see the benefits of school sports above any other kind to youth sports. The philosophy of eductional athletics, which the OHSAA places above all else, is what will produce tomorrow’s good citizens and community leaders, not playing eight games in a weekend or hopping around the country from one ‘big’ tournament to the next. “I invite the student-athlketes, teachers, coaches, administrators and families around Ohio to join me and the OHSAA in that belief. Togerther, we can make school sports what they are meant to be - preparation for the next level of life.” OHSAA Names the Five W’s of Interscholastic Athletics The following was published in an issue of the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) Magazine. “Who? We’re educational athletics, not big-time promoters. “What? We’re the builders of tomorrow’s community leaders, not farm clubs for college and professional teams. “When? We’re an afterschool activity, not a yearround endeavor. These are programs that allow kids to be kids. “Where? Our games should be played locally. There’s plenty of healthy competition where kids can learn and grow through athletics in most of our backyards. We don’t need national schedules to accomplsih our purposes. “Why? Because it’s th e only right way to do it. Schools offer these programs because they enhance the educational experience of the young people who participate.”

The Kelly Miller Circus will be in Batavia for two performances at 4:30 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 16 at the Red Barn, located at 299 Haskell Lane. This traditional tented circus still offers the same great family entertainment it presented in its humble beginnings back in 1938. The new 2011 edition of the Kelly Miller Circus will be in Bethel thanks to the sponsorship of the Village Association of Batavia. This year’s show features elephants, tiger, horses, and a

cast of international circus stars under a beautiful circus big top. The event is a fund-raiser for the Village Association of Batavia, which will receive a greater share of the advance ticket sales than from tickets sold on circus day. Advance tickets may be purchased now at Snappy Tomato Pizza, Batavia, Owensville IGA, Park National Bank, Eastgate, and the Candle Outlet at the Milford Plaza. For more information visit

More meal choices for Clermont seniors The 350 older adults who receive meals from Clermont Senior Services, are now getting a choice. “We are rolling out Savory Selects meals to our customers,” said Clermont Senior Services Chief Operating Officer Cindy Gramke. “There are 31 entrée choices that are available; we now offer everything from vegetarian meals to meatloaf, Baja chicken, and steak hoagies.
